Supporting Economic Growth through SAP’s S/4HANA Selective Data Transition Engagement

Supporting Economic Growth through SAP's S/4HANA Selective Data Transition Engagement

Chris Schroefl, Founder and CEO of Natuvion and former SAP Head of Innovation and Technology Adoption ANZ, takes us through Supporting data driven economic growth by maximizing your company’s compliant historical data through SAP’s S/4HANA Selective Data Transition Engagement.

Australia’s Privacy Act 1988was enforced to protect personal data of individuals residing in Australia. This requires businesses in Australia to implement certain procedures to maintain compliance when handling personal data not only to avoid fines but also to ensure your company can continue to be a trusted brand. Other international data privacy legal frameworks are taking a toll on companies as well as the requirement for SAP customers to migrate to SAP S/4HANA in order to continue receiving support and updates from SAP.

How can you ensure that the data you are migrating to the new SAP S/4HANA is compliant and utilized in the most intelligent way? 

Natuvion brings a unique set of expertise focusing on the SAP S/4HANA Transition standards in the areas of data privacy and transformation for Utilities and Private Sector companies. Natuvion has a strong background in handling high volumes of financial transactions, along with a deep knowledge of these industries. Natuvion can help you identify what data you want to move and provide the best standard processes that brings the most value to your organization while aligning methods with international and local legal frameworks. 

Currently, there are three methods to manage an SAP S/4HANA migration effort but how do you choose the one that is right for your organization while considering data privacy regulations?

The first option is a complete re-engineering of your system landscape processes and data called the Greenfield approach.

The second option is migrating high volumes of historical data in a system conversion called Brownfield approach. 

This new, third option, from the SAP S/4HANA Selective Data Transition Engagement, lets you leverage the best practices of Greenfield approach while bringing along just the historical data you need. You can easily merge, split, upgrade and harmonize your systems in a single SAP S/4HANA go-live project with minimal business disruptions.

Natuvion advantages: Quick Business Case development and a Phase 0 approach tailored to your organization’s needs.

Natuvion will work with you to develop a Business Case and a Phase 0 approach that will prepare your organization and your systems for the optimal SAP S/4HANA Transition by only merging up-to-date, non-duplicated and data compliant data into the new system.

You can also visit Natuvion at the SAUG Summit 2019 at booth SB-21for a deep dive into the SAP S/4HANA Selective Data Transition Approach. 

Now you no longer have to decide which migration method is best for your new landscape because the SAP S/4HANA Selective Data Transition Engagement gives you a third option which combines the best of both worlds.
